Gymnocalycium mihanovichii (Moon Cactus) is a species of cactus from South America. The most popular local cultivars are varied mutants that completely lack chlorophyll, exposing the red, orange, or yellow pigmentation. These mutant strains are often grafted onto the Hylocereus cactus, and the combined plant is called a “Moon Cactus”.
Grafted cactus is easy to grow because of the rootstock. Hylocereus undatus is a triangular-shaped, tropical, sprawling epiphytic cactus that is tolerant of extreme drought or survives in moist soil. These spiny beauties add some colour and pep to your collection of succulents.
These succulents come in an array of vibrant colours like red, dark shades of pink, orange, and neon yellow. These plants need balanced light and shade, and the root structure must receive proper sunlight for photosynthesis. The Moon cactus should be planted in well-drained soil, and placed in a warm place with sparse watering for happy growing.
